About the lecture:
Continuous Deployment sounds like a great concept, but is it applicable only to small startups? Can it be implemented also in organizations with complex production services and millions of users?
In this session, I will describe the Continuous Deployment best practices, tools, and culture change that have allowed Wix to boost its deployment pace from 2 times per month to 200 times per month.
We will also discuss the challenges in scaling Continuous Deployment in larger organizations.
